New module MarkInPageTree


Recommended Posts


New module which does what it says in the title. It adds an icon to a page on the page tree if -> a specific field is true and / or is a specified template.

For example I'm using it to add an icon to any page that has a checked (checkbox) exclusive field. This helps with admin clarity as you can see instantly which pages of the same template have differing content (i.e. are exclusive or not).

couldnt work it out, just gave me a field for searching the pages on the site but not selecting them... and it wouldnt show templates or fields.

I was able to use select multiple instead thought. For example:

$f = $this->modules->get('InputfieldSelectMultiple');
$f->attr('name', 'template');
$f->description =  $this->_("Template or templates of pages to trigger bulk email to users after new page published");
$f->addOption('', '');

foreach($this->templates as $template){
$f->addOption($template->name, $template->title);

Updated and works well (needed to delete the extra fa- in the html as the icon selector adds the complete fontawesome name). Only thing I would change but unsure is whether you can have or selector somehow as it currenlty only adds icons to the selectors found pages not a template or a field for example. i.e. for mulitple selectors.

Great idea and great module! Saves me some rather ugly additions to the displayed title page in the page tree.

One thing for the Christmas wish list: It would be even greater if the module would provide a way to set up several different rule sets. So you could set up different icons to mark different things.

not really sure how to make this happen... repeater? Anyone point me in the right direction to creating multiple additional fields to the module settings? so the module can have as many icon and template or field pairs as you want...?

Multi-value fields in module config is a bit tricky, because almost everything multi-value in pw is based on pages, which you don't use here. It's probably simplest to add an integer field "number_of_configuration", which does, after it's saved, cause the field(s) for the page selection to be rendered that many times. In your modules code you'd also use that number for determining how often to loop though potential configurations.

Happy Christmas everyone!

I had a bit of time to add tot his module :)

It now has textareas (thanks @tpr) in it's config which means it can now add as many icons and field and/or template pairs as you like. This means you could add one icon for pages of the template basic-page, and also add another icon for all pages with a counter etc...

Also... I've added a third textarea, allowing you to add a list of fields to show the data for IN the pagetree itself (see image below). In my example below I am able to show in the page tree by each page if they have a counter what the data is and whether the page has a field exclusive and its data.

Thanks for peoples help and hope it is useful. (updated on github)

Thanks for this module, it's quite useful, and it's work very well. However, I still wondering which icons I can use? I can't find anywhere a list or a reference to an iconset used by the module.

Great module, thank you!

Is there a way to use separate variations of icons, e.g. "fas fa-check" vs. "far fa-check"?

P.S.: You might want to point to the icon cheatsheet in the module description. I was confused as well (newbie).

Both valid. PW comes with Fontawesome in the default admin so thats why its the deafult far icons. If you want to purchase new icons versions and replaces the files in your copy then that shoul work.

Will definitely change the description.

Hi Benbyf,

I'm really enjoying this module.  It really helps visualize how the page tree relates to the templates.  I'm using "template" in Data.

One request: It would be really helpful if you could add a permission so that only super users see the MarkInPageTree stuff in the Page Tree by default.  If other roles need to see the MarkInPageTree stuff in the Page Tree, a site admin could add a MarkInPageTree permission to that role.

The only caveat is that existing sites that have already installed this module will need to be updated to use the new permission.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
